Incident Photo for the Dairy Fire

The Dairy Fire, located south of Red Bluff adjacent to the Sacramento River, started on June 15, 2021 and is now 100% contained. The fire burned approximately 163 acres of the La Barranca and Mooney units of the Sacramento River National Wildlife Refuge, primarily through remnant riparian forests and a small piece of habitat that had recently been restored. Firefighters from the Sacramento National Wildlife Refuge Complex, U.S. Forest Service, and CalFireĀ  worked through the night and held the fire at 165 acres. Firefighters from the refuge and USFS continued to work in hot and dry conditions securing the perimeter and extinguishing hot spots, preventing the fire from crossing the containment lines during the high heat and north winds. Wildfire in these remnant forests is rare, the current hot and dry conditions in a typically wet habitat underscores the importance of fire safety in and around these dry forest habitats.
